Restore Outlook w/o a .pst file

I did not export my outlook database to a pst file before backing up my hard drive. I reinstalled office now i would like to restore just the database.. is their a file that just contains the database so i can restore it over my installation database without replacing the entire office directory?

If you're not connecting to an Exchange Server all your data is in a PST file already (no export needed). Check your backup media for one.
vince is correct it is either in a pst or on the exchage server.  If it on exchange just add the service and you will be fine.  If you are not on exchage just do a find for *.pst and add a personal folder to your services menu.  

Hope this helps
